As I rushed out the door each morning I was missing something….
I was missing the sun making it’s way through my windows, streaming it’s light across the bedroom floor.
I remember now how it feels to pause as I awake and linger in the sweet stillness…just a moment longer.
I was missing the sounds of the wind through the trees and the songs of the birds.
Now I greet each morning with my presence and listen to the birds sing a joyful “hello”
I was missing the inspiring words and actions of everyday people stepping into their courage and shining their light in the world.
I am noticing now how this fills my heart with hope and joy.
It lifts me up and beckons me to step forward into my own courage, so that I too might share my light.
As I went about my busy days I was missing a connection with others and with myself.
But today I remember who I really am and I realize that we are all connected in more ways than we may know.
